The attention on immigration reform has now turned to the House, where Republicans recognize there is a need for reform and also believe that real, lasting reform cannot be rushed. In a GOP conference meeting last week, Republican leaders expressed the importance of working toward a real solution. House Republicans recognize that our immigration system is broken, and have already worked on separate bills to address some of the pressing needs. They will now take up the task of crafting a reform plan of their own.
Student loan rates doubled this month, and grads have the Democrats to blame. Stafford student loan rates doubled on July 1 because Senate Democrats and the President failed to act. House Republicans did everything they could to fix the problem, and passed a relief package in May that was partly based on an idea from the President himself. Republicans in Congress remain committed to a bipartisan solution, yet Democrats drug their feet and played politics, opposing the President’s own plan, and blocking any chance of any other plan passing. It’s time for Harry Reid to stop playing games and to start working with Republicans to provide relief to students.
These ARE the times that try men’s souls. Now we find that the IRS Chief Wilkins held up 2,900 Tea Party-type applications prior to the 2012 election, so they couldn’t raise money against Obama. In addition, Obama signed yet another executive order (more abuse) requiring mandatory HIV testing under ObamaCare for ages 15-65. Survivors of Benghazi were forced to sign non-disclosure agreements. Folks, more than ever we need people willing to take a stand against any and all tyranny. We are being over-regulated and taxed at every juncture. Obama has and is centralizing power to our detriment. Paraphrasing Lincoln – “most men can withstand adversity, but few men withstand being given power.” It seems we are reaping the results of a drunk-with-power president with a socialistic mentality who knows so little of basic economics.
I have never feared my own government more than now. If Christians, Tea Partiers, and Libertarians are considered terrorists under watch lists, then we are being led by a dictator with evil intent. More than ever we need true leaders who serve to protect the citizens of the U.S. from such abuse. Even in the military our soldiers are feeling the grip of our anti-God leaders by not allowing use or reading of their Bibles, nor sharing their faith. Chaplains are being restricted on what used to be common place, even to the extent of not praying with our troops. WE NEED A CHANGE! As Reagan said, “One nation under God,” or a nation gone under.
Hold your elected officials to a high standard. Make your voices heard. If they don’t listen, vote them out. One thing is for sure, now is NOT the time to bail out of the process. Now is the time to fight as you have never fought before. If you don’t, we will become the very thing we used to fight against. Only you, by your involvement, can prevent this from happening.

Will Another Jobs Report Bring Yet Another Failed White House Focus On Jobs?
Since 2011, Obama has pivoted to jobs enough to make one’s head spin. After the latest jobs report (which I referred to in my last newsletter), Obama may be due for another pivot.

All Americans Deserve A Permanent Delay Of the Obamacare Train Wreck
Obama’s signature achievement is in jeopardy, as the White House can’t figure ObamaCare out. The Obama Administration made a unilateral decision to delay ObamaCare’s employer mandate until after the midterm elections, but left the individual mandate intact. This delay just proves that the employer mandate was bad policy and bad for the economy. Democrats are clearly scared of being held accountable for its effects in the 2014 elections.
But it’s not fair that only businesses get a delay. What about individuals? All American deserve a permanent delay of this unworkable, increasingly disastrous law. Historians may well look back on this week’s two House votes – to repeal the employer mandate and the individual mandate – as the beginning of the end for ObamaCare.
Obamacare Train Wreck Continues To Derail
Every week brings more evidence that the ObamaCare implementation is a disaster. The administration is arbitrarily rewriting the law and blaming computer glitches for failing to meet deadlines. The creation of exchanges is far behind schedule, with the October 1 deadline fast approaching. Businesses and schools are being forced to cut workers and hours because of new costs and regulations.
ObamaCare is as unpopular as ever. Healthcare costs are rising. Millennials will see higher premiums. As employers cut hours to avoid costly regulations, they’re creating a “part-time” economy with fewer full-time workers. HHS Secretary Sebelius has been shaking down private companies to spend money to support its implementation. The discredited IRS will enforce it. It’s not even on schedule for implementation. ObamaCare has become the “Unaffordable Care Act” and a “train wreck.”

Opposition to ObamaCare . . . from some (not so) surprising sources
The strongest supporters of Obama and the Democrats are coming out against ObamaCare. Union support for Democrats and ObamaCare has come back to “haunt” them. The unions’ frustration over ObamaCare is likely to carry over into the 2014 mid-term elections. The next six months of ObamaCare implementation will be “really bumpy” for Democrats and all Americans. ObamaCare implementation has raised Democrats’ anxieties, as they’re now trying to save themselves in the 2014 midterms.
Hypocrite Harry Reid Threatens The “Nuclear Option”
Harry Reid and Senate Democrats are threatening to rewrite the rules of the Senate using the “nuclear option” to eliminate the 60-vote threshold to filibuster presidential nominees. If the Senate doesn’t force through 7 of President Obama’s nominees, Reid plans to change the rules of the Senate next week with a simple majority vote. This is something Reid, Obama and Biden once forcefully opposed and vowed to not do. Harry Reid is proving himself a hypocrite, willing to go back on his word and fundamentally change the Senate for his party’s political gain. To quote Harry Reid’s own 2008 memoir, this move, “would be the end of the United States Senate.” It shows Democrats will resort to the most desperate power-plays to force their agenda on the American people, instead of sitting down and working with Republicans.
